Turgo turbine is one type of impulse turbine.
Its nozzle has a 22.5°angle with the runner rotation surface. The water coming from the penstock is converted into high speed jet by the nozzle, imposing the runner in inclined direction.
The water runs in from one side of the blade, running out from the other side, pushing the runner to rotate, the runner then drive the generator through coupler to produce electricity.
Turgo turbine has as simple structure as the pelton turbine, reliable and easy to maintain and manage.
Moreover, it has the merit of high specific speed, wide application range, easy to coupling and direct connection to the generator.
So, in the recent years, it is well developed and widely used in mountain area
autonomous region, export to more than ten countries such as U.S.A., Iran, Vietnam, Indonesia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Korea,etc..
